I have a Windows Small Business Server 2008 Std as my domain controller and I want to add my Windows Server 2008 Std as a backup domain controller. I have run the dcpromo and I am now being asked..
"To install a domain controller into this Active Directory Forest you must first prepare the forest using "adprep /forestprep". The adprep utility is available on the Windows Server 2008 R2 installation media in the \support\adprep folder"
My questions are as follows:
1. Do I run adprep /forest prep on my DC or on the machine I am adding as a backup domain controller?
2. Is running this likely to screw up my current DC?
3. I am working remotely and was hoping to just have to copy the \support\adprep directory via VPN then run it from the required server? will this work or does is use anything else off the install Disk?
Any help would be greatly appreceiated
